Hi gang! There are some tempting games in the Premier League this weekend, plus a Serie A clash which could have a big impact on the table. Here are my thoughts.
Fiorentina need a good result here after a run of one win in five games. AS Roma haven’t won either of their last two league matches, so this game is well poised. One thing I don’t expect here is many goals. There have been Under 3.5 Goals in all of the Viola’s past nine games in Serie A, and Under 2.5 Goals in eight of Roma’s last ten away. Roma won here last season, but I’ll go for a Draw this time.
Match Tip: Under 3.5 Goals
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Fiorentina 1 v 1 AS Roma
Arsenal’s winning run came to an end after a disappointing draw against Crystal Palace last Sunday, and now they face a far tougher test. The Gunners have lost their last six game against other “Big Six” sides and have not beaten Liverpool since Jurgen Klopp took charge of the Reds in 2015. There have been Over 2.5 Goals in all of their past five meetings, with an incredible 27 goals in total. I can see more goals this time around, and I’ll back Liverpool to take the points.
Match Tip: Over 2.5 Goals
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Arsenal 1 v 2 Liverpool
Wolves aren’t looking so strong lately after losing two games in a row without scoring. The worry for them is that they don’t score many, with Under 2.5 Goals in nine of their ten league games so far this season. It’s been a mixed week for Spurs, but they have won five of their six away games in the Premier League this season. I’m going to back them to hold off the Wolves this time too.
Match Tip: Under 2.5 Goals
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Wolves 0 v 2 Tottenham
I think Manchester City might be even better than they were last season! The league leaders haven’t conceded in their last six league games, and now take on a Southampton side who haven’t scored in any of their last five league matches. Former Citizens manager Mark Hughes lost 7-2 here last season when he was in charge of Stoke, and I don’t think it’ll be much better this time.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score No
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Man City 4 v 0 Southampton
Villarreal are just one point above the relegation zone in La Liga before the weekend. They have lost three of their last four league games and only scored twice in fie home matches so far this season. Levante are impressing, though. Four straight league wins have put them seventh and they beat Real Madrid in their last away game. They haven’t won at Villarreal since 2011, but I have a suspicion that might change.
Match Tip: Double Chance Levante
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Villarreal 1 v 2 Levante
